A N N UA LR E P O RT 2 01 7

Thirty-two years ago, John Madden, Jr. brought together a group of corporate leaders who knew the value of the intersection between business and the arts. Their forward-thinking commitment to corporate social responsibility defined CBCA. What was true then, remains the foundation today. At its core, CBCA realizes that a healthy arts community fosters a healthy business economy; that innovative approaches from different perspectives stimulate growth; that arts not only enhance our economic development, but are the very fabric of our community; and, above all, that the arts are for all Coloradans. Fiscal year 2017 was both a time to reflect on CBCA’s past success as well as embrace new ideas. We bade a fond farewell to long-time Executive Director Deborah Jordy just as we welcomed incoming Executive Director Christin Crampton Day. We celebrated 16 years of our popular “Night At…” member events, 20 years of our distinct Leadership Arts board training program and 30 years of our Business for the Arts Awards luncheon. We embarked on a listening tour to learn from our members and key stakeholders about what they value and where we need to improve. This has led to growth in our Board of Directors, reevaluation of our awards luncheon, creation of our core values and expansion of our goals and priorities.

We hope you will enjoy what we have in store.

In FY18, you will begin to see these strategic improvements. We’re developing more ways to engage, more tools to advocate, more partnerships statewide and more opportunities for you — our valuable members, partners and sponsors — to pair your appreciation of our thriving arts scene with one of the strongest business communities in the nation.

LEADERSHIP ARTS

Over 20 years, Leadership Arts has prepared more than 750 individuals to serve on nonprofit Boards of Directors and increase their civic engagement in the arts. As the only program of its kind in the region to focus on arts and culture, it is a critical way in which CBCA elevates the business community’s appreciation of and understanding that the arts are essential to Colorado’s economic development and vitality. The 2016-2017 class was the largest cohort in the program’s history and included 54 individuals who participated in the nine-month training program, which covers governance, strategic planning, advocacy, fundraising, legal issues and current topics in the arts. Over 50 cultural nonprofits attended the annual Leadership Arts Board Fair at the conclusion of the program, eager to meet the latest graduates and start the conversation about volunteer service.

In 2017, CAFTA facilitated 29 referrals for income-qualified artists, cultural nonprofits and creative entities to receive pro bono legal assistance from Colorado attorneys. With a growing roster of volunteer attorneys (up to 76 by the end of 2017), CAFTA has been able to assist with issues including copyright and trademark registrations, freelance design contracts, formation of a nonprofit theater company, real estate contracts for a mural festival and estate planning for an elderly visual artist. Additionally, participating attorneys have toured the state to provide arts-related legal presentations and workshops for more than 170 individuals. CAFTA also offered its first Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits in 2017.

Every other year, CBCA publishes an Economic Activity Study of Metro Denver Culture, which quantifies the financial and social impact of nonprofit arts organizations in the seven-county region (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson). The data is compiled in partnership with the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). The report translates the relevance of the arts into “business terms,” such as operating costs, capital spending, job growth, payroll and philanthropy. The arts generate billions in economic activity and employing tens of thousands of individuals in Denver’s nonprofit cultural sector alone. In 2017, CBCA continued to ensure this important data was in the hands and heads of business leaders, arts advocates, media and elected officials. For example, staff made presentations to the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, Asian Chamber of Commerce, the Leadership Jefferson County Class and the Board of Directors of Central City Opera and Arts Students League of Denver, to name a few.

The next Economic Activity Study will be released on November 1, 2018.

ON MY OWN TIME

Barbara Lewis and Michael McClung judging the OMOT Prologis employee art show.

On My Own Time (OMOT) promotes and celebrates workforce creativity. In the last 12 years, CBCA has showcased 4,000 works of art from 2,500 employees at 27 unique companies and agencies. Every other year, OMOT provides an opportunity to recognize and encourage employee creativity, stimulate dialogue and connections, and enhance company culture. In 2017, three companies participated in OMOT visual arts exhibitions: Kaiser Permanente Colorado, Pinnacol Assurance and Prologis. Combined, there were 140 participants (employees and family members) who created and displayed 215 unique artworks. Kaiser also included a poetry competition with 10 entries.
